WAYNESBORO - The Waynesboro Police Department has arrested a city man on a single count of drug distribution after officers caught him with an ounce of methamphetamine.

Officers charged Jose Estrada-Almanza, 23 years old, who was the target of an ongoing drug investigation, with one count of Possession of Methamphetamine with the Intent to Distribute.

Just after midnight on August 1, officers observed Estrada-Almanza walking in the 800 block of King Avenue. In his possession, he had an individual serving size box of Frosted Flakes from which he was eating. When the officers approached Estrada-Almanza, he tried to toss the cereal box in the air discreetly.
